“Interesting”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had a good guide but you need to be able to speak Spanish. It was a wierd mix but none the less interesting.

“Strange”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

If you like weird this will be for you. Torture, political prisoners, paper mach exhibits. I had the thought that a 3rd grade class could make it. On the other hand, the tour guide was knowledgeable and the information helpful in understanding the history.

“Diverting insight”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Since they offer also an English speaking guide it is worth seeing. A little bit of insight into the recent history and legends of bygone times.

“A little hokey, but well worth it”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This museum is in an old prison, so there's a ton of history there which is really interesting. Some of the exhibits are a little hokey, but you have to remember that this is a museum of legends. The displays are hand-made and sometimes come with sound effects. There are tour guides who speak English and Spanish, so definitely go with one of them. They will explain all about the building itself as well as cover lots of legends and culture.
